Programs and services can be:

  • Informational approaches – directed at changing knowledge or attitudes about the benefits of and opportunities for healthy lifestyles
  • Behavior or social approaches – designed to teach employees the behavioral management skills necessary for successful adoption and maintenance of behavior change

Examples of workplace health programs and services might include:

Workplace health programs are not add-on benefits but basic investments in human capital, similar to training, mentoring, and other employee development programs.

Regardless of which interventions are selected, the program should strive to:  

  • Use multiple interventions, such as combining a policy and a health benefit intervention, for a single health issue.  Combinations are more effective than any one intervention alone
  • Use interventions that address multiple health issues at the same time, which is more effective than addressing each single health issue separately
